Chapters can be viewed most significantly as “Branches” or “Regional Operations Center” of Indian Cyber Army, and are initiated to act as outreach center so that Indian Cyber Army members can meet and carry out activities according to their own local needs.
Indian Cyber Army actively encourages the creation of new chapters. As a not for profit organization, Indian Cyber Army’s mission is to create capability, capacity and consistency within the global technical Cyber Security/ Information Security Industry. As a consequence, we will provide support and assistance to regions that are focused on building local Indian Cyber Army chapters.
Indian Cyber Army is focused on making chapters sustainable. Although sustainability within regions will be influenced by a number of different factors, some of the Chapters blueprint are as follows.
- Government recognition that Cyber Security is a significant area of focus
- Interest from industry regulators. A desire to build cyber security standards that achieve more consistency and maturity within their industry.
- A community that actively procedure technical cyber security services.
- A community that recognize the need to demonstrate skills, capabilities and experiences to industry stake holders.
Although there are no concrete figures in Chapters blueprint, requiring a minimum number of member companies or Information Security professionals required to build a chapter, Indian Cyber Army believes that it is a tipping point where sustainability becomes easier to achieve.
If there are approximately 15-20 individuals within a market that are actively involved in the delivery of technical cyber security services and who recognize the value in demonstrating their skills to employers, then this would indicate a sustainable base of individuals.
In every instance, Indian Cyber Army is interested in supporting States, organizations and even individual cyber security professionals build and sustain Indian Cyber Army chapters. We actively encourage dialogue, and are keen to help support initiatives that drive consistency across the national cyber security industry.
It provides educational forums, publications, and peer interaction opportunities that enhance the knowledge, skill, and professional growth of its members.
The primary goal of the Indian Cyber Army is to promote management practices that will ensure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of information resources. The Indian Cyber Army facilitates interaction and education to create a more successful environment for global information systems security and for the professionals involved. Members regularly include practitioners at all levels of the security field in a broad range of industries such as communications, education and government.
